  • M2-ATX shutdown question

    So I've just installed my M10000 and I'm using an M2-ATX power supply. Everything seems to be working correctly in the beginning. I turn on the car and about 5 seconds later the system powers up. Then I turn off the car and about 5 seconds after the car is off, the M2 turns off completely, no nice shutdown of Windows. I have the MB power signals routed to the J8, and like I said it works to turn on OK. It's the hard off instead of shutting down that is odd. The timing jumpers are set to "B". In Windows, the power option is set to "power off" the when the power buton is pressed.

    Any ideas what this could be? Thanks!

    How is your M2-ATX wired to your car's electrical system? Do you have the +12vdc lines reversed? If you're using MODE 1, it should be shutting down fine. I use Hibernate in windows, but the M2 sends the hibernation signal 5 seconds after I turn the car off, and then shuts down completely after 45 seconds. If the power lines are reversed it would (I think) turn on just fine, but the power off would be a hard off as you would be cutting the power immediately.

      I second the reversed +12constant and +12ignition.

      Sounds like a classic problem.

        Just got another chance to work on it. Makes sense what you guys said, but I checked and everything works as it should. The line going to J1 is always on (battery +) and the line going to J3 turns on after I turn the ignition. These are all with reference to J4 (gnd).

        Anyways I fixed it by making one of my buttons trigger the Windows shutdown. I'm just using a character LCD and keypad interface. It works and I'm happy, I'll have to post my pictures when I get a chance. Thanks for the help!

            Cause MODE A does not have any timing, start up or shutdown services.

              What MODE are using based on the Jumpers. Your BIOS is probably set to start the computer upokn power application, so once the M2 powers the ATX connector, it starts up, no matter what happens with the button.

              It is not shutting down properly because your J8 wires are not hooked to the MB ACPI header correctly, or you have a positive switch (not likely).

                yes it does, the manual claims this anyway.

                EDIT: i see that i have said the wrong thing, its on jumper A but mode 1. sorry about that.

                    Alright, I unhooked the J8 wire from the motherboard and turned the key, the system did not boot. i turned the key off and hooked up the wire to the board, turned the key and 5sec later it booted up.

                    The wires should be hooked up correctly to the header unless positive and negative matter, which as far as i know they shouldnt.

                    I'll have to check the BIOS again but i'm pretty sure there are no power options.

                      Positive and negative can matter.

                      Do you have a button that you can connect to the MB instead of J8. Power the M2 (including the accessory wire), push the button, and see if you boot. Push the button again, and see what happens. All the M2 does is simulate a button press. You can check for continuity between the two wires of J8 when it goes to shut down (with out it connected to the MB, to confirm that it is sending the "shutdown" signal)

                        ok, i switched the wire and it seems to have worked. The only other thing i'm having a problem with is the fact that when i turn the key it doesnt shutdown. it will wait the 45sec then "hardoff".

                          Did you confirm that the M2 is sending the "shutdown" signal by checking for continuity when it starts to shutdown.

                          Also, check Control panel, Power Options, Advanced, and choose what you want to happen when the button is pushed.

                            no. i do not have a DMM which has the continuity test with me.

                            there are no options for the power button in Power Options.

                              What MB do you have? Sounds like it doesn't support ACPI, which could be a problem.
